We are avid hikers/campers looking for our dream home on the road.
Our tow vehicle would be a Nissan Frontier V-6 4 x 4 with 6,100lbs. max towing capacity. We need a double bed for two adults to comfortably share.
We thought we wanted a 17CB Bigfoot
, but unless we could modify it to have a double bed sized sleeping area (without losing the bathroom--still waiting to hear from anyone who has done this), we will have to get an Escape
17' Plan B, an 19' Escape
5.0, or a Casita
16' or 17' Spirit Deluxe.
We cannot do a 21' Bigfoot
because it's too wide to fit in our driveway.
We'd also consider a Scamp
fifth wheel IF the axle
and suspension and overall unit would hold up to being taken on washboard, rutted dirt roads (the RV Consumer group ratings suggest that the Scamp
would not hold up well for "rv trekking," but we'd love to hear what Scamp
owners have to say on that subject).
We are willing to travel a reasonable distance (i.e. CA, Utah and possibly farther) to get a trailer that has been very well-kept up (and loved) home with us.
Even if you own but are not selling one of these models and live in Arizona, we would be most appreciative if you would let us take a look at yours!
